Aquathon training in a chlorine pool

Due to Wagga Wagga only having chlorine pools and not saltwater pools, for the first time I am training for the Aquathon in a different environment.

For the first week of my holidays I trained in the chlorine pool every weekday. I found that the chlorine water is lighter than saltwater and is easier to swim in, with this week’s training times up to one minute faster than my usual times:


December 19: 7 minutes, 43 seconds

December 20: 7 minutes, 59 seconds

December 21: 7 minutes, 57 seconds

December 23: 7 minutes, 50 seconds

I did train on December 22, however I couldn’t find the recorded time I had, which is why it’s not listed. However I think it would have fallen within my other recorded times.
